    Can anyone tell me where to find some good directions for setting up a sump for my 92 gallon corner tank. I have had this tank for about 3 years with a few soft corals, anemones, and fish. I have a hob skimmer that is needing to be replaced. I was thinking about the Reef Octopus 2000. Then...

    I have a tank with a 2" reinforcing rim around the top (all sides), and I'm unable to drill it to set up an overflow to sump as I'm borrowing the tank indefinitely (or until I can get my partner to agree to a larger one!), but it still has to go back to my father in law in one piece. I'm...

    So I got a Reef Octopus Bh 1000 yesterday and I have a few questions I couldn't find in the search. Is it supposed to be a tea color ? How long does it take to break in I've read 1-2 days but others say 1-2 weeks and even months. How to adjust if it's running wet vs dry.

    whats up all....so on my 29 gallon mixed reef i decided to try out the cpr aquafuge 2. i do not have any experience with HOB refugiums. basically my question is this: When i turned off the power after i ran it for the first time for about 15 minutes the aquafuge 2 drained back into the tank...

    There is a lot of info out there on protein skimmers for a nano cube. some say they are pointless in a tank that small, others say any skimming is good skimming, i am of the second mindset. I have the crappy oceanic biocube skimmer in there and while that produces a yellow skimmate i want a...

    For sale is my barely used Reef Octopus BH-1000 skimmer. All the original parts, box etc are included. I've drilled my tank for an overflow and sump and have upgraded to an in sump skimmer so this one will just take up space and collect dust. It's in excellent working, clean condition. Paid...

    I am selling my HOB refugium on eBay: eBay Item # 271540348073 (Go to eBay and search for 271540348073) . Currently at $40 plus $10 shipping. I used it for 3 months with my 15g nano tank, and it made a huge difference on water quality and coral health. I have switched to a drilled tank. PS. If...

    Hi everyone, I was looking into a skimmer for my 20 gallon tank. I was looking at either the reef octopus bh-100 or the reef octopus ns80. I really like the price on the ns80 :lol: but I want to know if it will be effective on my tank.

    I've been using a cheapo HOB protein skimmer for a couple months until I could get my big skimmer fixed- and it's finally up and running! I've been reading a lot about adding filter media in "reactors" and how you kinda want the media rolling around... Would adding carbon or phosban into the...

    Hey all, I am in the process of buying all my equipment to set up my JBJ 30 Rimless. Can anyone who is familiar with this tank chime in on if a CPR Aquafuge (I was thinking medium) would fit on the back of it? I would really like to have a refugium but don't have the space below the tank. If...

    Please see the photos and advise if I did anything wrong. It's drawing water but no bubbles in the skimmer.

    I feel a back up drain is important with any sump setup. How important is up to you. Here's how I am installing one in my Lifereef HOB overflow I've had for about 20 years now. I've ordered a black acrylic inner skimmer box to replace this one so the black background and the new skimmer box...

    I was looking to see if I could get any feed back on 2 HOB skimmers. I've narrowed down my search to these two, but I really don't know which one to pick. It'll be going onto a 45H with a Marineland Emperor 280 and a possible Fluval 105 canister (if I can find the hose to jery-rig it). There's...

    So im looking to get a HOB skimmer for my 55 gallon FOWLR. The tank is in my bed room so id like the skimmer to be as quiet as possible. Ive been looking at the Reef Octopus bh90(http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/reef-octopus-bh90-hang-on-back-protein-skimmer.html) But also have heard the Eshopps...

    Anyone have any experience using a Finnex HOB refugium or Marina breeder box as a refugium? I have a 75 gallon tank with a TOM's RP3 filter and was thinking about adding a hob fuge. The CPR ones look good but way overpriced. These others have a capacity of about a 1/2 gallon which I know...
